The new Alfa Romeo Giulietta has gone on sale in the UK today with revised styling, enhanced specification, new technology, a simplified range structure and a new engine and transmission combination to meet the evolving demands of the premium hatchback buyer.

The new front-end styling comprises a striking new honeycomb grille, piano black bumper inserts (with red highlights on sporty models) and revised headlamp and fog lamp surrounds. The new look is complemented by new Alfa Romeo and Giulietta badge designs, new alloy wheels, revised tail pipes and new colours (Alfa White and Lipari Grey), while the interior benefits from revised seat upholsteries and dashboard/door panel finishes, a new trip computer display and a Uconnect infotainment system now with smartphone-enabled LIVE services including music streaming with Deezer and TuneIn, news from Reuters, Facebook and Twitter check in, eco:Drive and my:Car services and traffic updates for navigation-equipped models.

Under the bonnet there’s now the option of combining the 120hp 1.6-litre JTDM-2turbo diesel engine with the ALFA TCT twin dry-clutch transmission. Employing second-generation MultiJet technology with a variable-geometry turbo charger, this engine produces 120hp at 3,750rpm and an impressive 320Nm of torque from just 1,7450 rpm and, when paired with Alfa Romeo’s quick-shifting and smooth ALFA TCT transmission, it can be used as a full automatic (with its responsiveness and shift patterns adjusted via the three-mode Alfa D.N.A. drive selector, along with the power steering assistance, ESC and Q2 electronic differential settings and throttle and brake responsiveness) or as a full manual, either by slotting the dear selector into its sequential gate or by using the standard steering wheel paddle shifters.

This engine and transmission combination has a top speed of 121mph and can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in 10.2 seconds, while its official combined cycle fuel-economy and emissions figures matches those of the manual version, returning 74.3 MPG (3.8 l/100 km) and producing just 99 g/km of CO2.

In the UK, the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta’s model range features five trim levels: Giulietta, Giulietta Super, Giulietta Tecnica, Giulietta Speciale and Giulietta Veloce. The entry-level Giulietta now benefits from burnished headlamp surrounds, satin-finish door handles and new oblique tailpipes, while inside there are new grey and black fabric seats with Alfa Romeo logo on the head restraints, new matte black dashboard insert and luxury floor mats.

The refreshed style elements are accompanied by a comprehensive standard equipment list which includes a leather steering wheel with audio remote controls, air conditioning, five-inch Uconnect LIVE with DAB plus USB and Bluetooth connectivity, luxury floor mats, Alfa D.N.A. selector, six airbags, 16-inch ‘Turbine’ alloy wheels, electric windows all round (one-touch in the front) and steering-wheel paddle shifters on TCT-equipped models. The engines available in this trim level are the 120hp 1.4-litre Turbo Petrol and 120hp 1.6-litre JTDM-2turbo diesel, 120hp (manual or ALFA TCT), 150hp 1.4-litre Turbo Petrol and 150hp 2.0-litre JTDM-2turbo diesel. Prices for the Giulietta start from £18,450 OTR (1.4 Turbo Petrol 120hp).

The Giulietta Super trim level adds dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, a front armrest, new 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, rear parking sensors, rear air vents and upgraded seat upholstery and while the engine range comprises the 120hp 1.6-litre JTDM-2turbo diesel (manual or Alfa TCT), 150hp 1.4-litre Turbo Petrol, 150hp 2.0-litre JTDM-2turbo diesel, 170hp 1.4-litre Turbo Petrol ALFA TCT and 175hp 2.0-litre JTDM-2turbo diesel TCT. Prices for the Super range start at £19,300 OTR (1.6-litre JTDM-2120hp).

A new Lusso pack can be added to the Super model to enhance the elegant look of the car and includes a 17-inch alloy wheel upgrade, sports leather upholstery, a rear armrest with third rear headrest, aluminium kick plates, electric lumbar support on both front seats, a height adjustable passenger seat and the 6.5-inch Uconnect Live system with voice-operated satellite navigation and 3D mapping. The Lusso pack is priced at £2,650.

The new Giulietta Tecnica replaces the fleet-oriented Business Edition and again includes the 6.5-inch Uconnect infotainment system with navigation as standard (albeit with more features), along with the Visibility Pack (automatic lights and wipers, electro-chromatic rear view mirror and electrically folding door mirrors), electric lumbar support on both front seats, a height adjustable passenger seat, front and rear parking sensors and a no-cost choice of pastel and metallic paint finishes. New 16-inch wheels, rear privacy glass and side skirts are additional features over the outgoing Business Edition. The available engine range includes the 120hp 1.6-litre JTDM-2turbo diesel (manual and ALFA TCT), 150hp 2.0-litre JTDM-2turbo diesel and 175hp 2.0-litre JTDM-2turbo diesel ALFA TCT. Prices for the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Tecnica start at just £19,250 OTR (120hp 1.6-litre JTDM-2).

The Giulietta Speciale offers customers the option of combining the sporty look and feel of the high performance Veloce version with a broad selection of engines. Standard equipment includes a sports suspension; sports bumpers with red Alfa profile; classic, five-hole, 18-inch alloy wheels; Brembo brakes with red, four-piston callipers; new carbon-look headlamp surrounds; an anthracite finish on the mirror caps, door handles, grille and fog light surrounds and the 6.5-inch Uconnect LIVE system with navigation. Prices for the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Speciale start at £24,240 OTR (150hp 1.4 Turbo Petrol MultiAir).

Fabric and Alcantara sports seats, aluminium pedals, a flat-bottom sports steering wheel with red stitching and the carbon-look dashboard surrounds and door panels complete the comprehensive Speciale package and engine choices include the 150hp 1.4-litre Turbo Petrol, 150hp 2.0-litre JTDM-2turbo diesel, 170hp 1.4-litre Turbo Petrol  ALFATCT and 175hp 2.0-litre JTDM-2turbo diesel ALFA TCT.

Finally, the new Giulietta Veloce tops the revised line-up and in terms of equipment is similar to the Speciale but with stylish new 18-inch alloy wheels, specific sports suspension tuning, oversized tailpipes and, of course, the most powerful engine in the Giulietta range – the 240hp 1750 Turbo Petrol engine combined with a specially calibrated TCT transmission. Prices for the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce start at £28,480 OTR.
